I love seeing how they express themselves!Maria Sibylla Merian for Selby's school research project (check out this delightful children's book about her).

classrooms. We started seeds for "kitchen gardens"; sowed seeds for Florida-native-style "three sisters gardens" of sweet sorghum, seminole pumpkins, and yard long beans; and installed "food pollinator gardens" to attract butterflies, birds, bees, and other useful critters. I'm loving working with all the children and seeing their enthusiasm for digging in the dirt!
I've got a few other projects underway this season... each of which will likely get it's own post soon! Currently, I'm:
- hosting my spring nature journaling eCourse, A Sense of Place,
- planting my spring edible garden, which has now spread to include my front yard,
- fixing up my butterfly garden and pond for the arrival of new spring critters,
- planning & compiling an At-Home Summer Nature Camp eCurriculum (available by preorder),
- and creating a space to house some soon-to-come new additions to our nest... bunnies!
